Sri Lankan Prez Goes Nuts Over Airplane Snack

Sri Lankan Prez Goes Nuts Over Airplane Snack
Ryan Boyd

After a recent Sri Lankan Airlines flight, Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena went on the warpath about the in-flight fare offered by the carrier: the cashews.

“When I returned from Nepal, they served some cashew nuts on the plane [that], let alone humans, even dogs can’t eat, who approves these things?” Sirisena¬†announced angrily to a group of farmers.

“Who approved the cashew? Who is responsible for this?”

It has not yet been made clear what, specifically, was objectionable about the cashews.

    Looks like another victim of the Korean syndrome! Honestly can’t understand how people can go nuts over nuts. It’s one thing is the meal was awful.

    Mr Sirisena is clearly a bit of a nut ball himself.

    Cashews are the king of nuts, and I would be delighted to be served these more expensive tasty treats. Peanuts on the other hand aren’t even nuts!

    Passenger: Do you serve nuts on this flight?

    FA: Yes. We serve everyone.
